A fair trade, beautifully crafted notebook bound in a vibrant sari and filled with handmade paper.
These notebooks are the perfect gift for those who love to write notes. They are a handy pocket size and ideal as a teachers gift or Christmas stocking filler.
Each notebook contains 30 pages of handmade recycled cotton paper and is fastened with a traditional wrap around string.
The cotton used is unbleached and is the left overs from the massive Indian garment industry. They are made in a small workshop in Rajasthan, India by skilled crafts people using a mixture of traditional and contemporary methods.
We don't recommend using fountain pen with this type of handmade paper.
Available in two handy sizes and six vibrant sari colours.
We are a fair trade company and regularly visit our suppliers to ensure the highest standards are met. We quality control all of our products to ensure that you only receive the best.
We pay our suppliers 50% upfront and send money to them whenever they need it. We never send anything back or not pay for damaged goods. We use a bonus system for the staff and they can earn up to 5% of our total order value which can give them an extra month’s wages per year.
The sari’s come from Varanasi, one of the most religious cities in the world and a centre of excellence for sari making. We use new saris as we cannot guarantee the cleanliness of recycled sari’s and cannot always get the correct styles and designs.
These albums have been expertly crafted using a mixture of contemporary and traditional methods and the pages have been hand bound and are ideal for travelling and perfect for doodling or diary writing.
